Pictures – great, words catchy and the CD finishes it beatifully. Are there anymore by these people?

"Cute and fun tale for toddlers"
4 stars"

Great book gifted by grandma. I personally enjoy it more than the little one (nearly 2yrs) at this point but better than the Wonky Donkey. The story is so cute, explanatory of the bees journey in the garden in a neat way and lovely rhyming. Interesting looking pages with with depth and colour in the illustrations. Recommend this.

"Funny, interesting story and song, lovely illustrations."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I love this book/CD and so do the children! There are plenty of learning opportunities in the story and it is fun at the same time. It has a catchy tune.


From the creators of award-winning #1 bestseller The Wonky Donkey - a catchy song with endearing illustrations that will have you buzzing!

And as Willbee flew away, he did not stop,
his jersey unravelled from the bottom to the top,
and when he realised this, he lost his hum …
He was showing the whole garden his bare bum!

Willbee the bumblebee is so embarrassed when he realises his stripy jumper has caught on a rose thorn and completely unravelled . . .

Paperback book + CD of catchy song to accompany story.
